I Have installed a screenlet applet and Conky to my PC.

But when I open dash it starting to blink and show through these applets. How do I correct this.

The Conky FAQ has a section with two possible workarounds in case Conky is flickering - I don't know whether one or other of these would help in the inverse case, but it probably doesn't hurt to find out.

It suggests adding either

double_buffer yes


own_window yes

to your .conkyrc file.
